Will the Cruise Never End?

[Jami at the bow – guiding us out of Tampa Bay.]

And the answer to the question is . . . maybe?  Try as I might, I could not be everywhere on the trip.  So these are contributed photos from other family members, mostly Danny.  And if I’m not taking the photos, that means I might . . . be in ’em!  😉

[The Montreal sisters.  Among our favorite “other” passengers.]

[J learned quick!]

[It may have been a signal?]


[Ahhhh 2!]

[Ship restaurant mural that caught our attention.  Dorothy Lamour?]

[Woo-woo!  First stop – Roatan, Honduras.]

[Jace (below), our tour guide, was probably hassled daily by the local authorities??]


[Rita liked it!]

[Jami gets her dreads.  Several people came back to the ship with them that day.  🙂 ]

[Rita buys sunglasses at Bananarama.]

[The water was clearer than in our bathtub – particularly after I get out!]

[Dorothy Lamour?]

[Who do we pay and how much?]

[Would probably have been amazing.]

[Cheeseburger in paradise?]

[And away we go.]

[Whatever it is, tell them to bring us a cold one!  (I’m the bald one.)]

[I heard the Slauson cutoff was closed?]

[An infinite number of Dannys.]

[Tom takes a load off.]

[Help!  Help!  I’m trapped in my state room!]

[It’s OK.  I wanted to be here anyway!]

[The kids room in the star.]

[Jami and the supervisor always managed to get front row seats?]

[Possibly TSA agents looking to frisk me . . . again!  I slipped into a perfumery and made my getaway.]

[I believe a 2nd cousin – he knew Aunt Inga?]

[Just say no to crack!]

[The siesta – the true sign of a civilized society!]

[Rita and I in the background asking that eternal question, “Lunch?”]

[Jami once again rubs elbows with the stars!  😉 ]

[Yup, that’s my boat!]

[The lower level – where we finally lunched.]

[Just be careful regarding your employment of the above sign.]

[We barged right in on this woman and her baby – she was pleasant enough despite this.]

[Too cute!  Destined to be in many cruise memory books.]

[It’s a PAR-TAY!]

[ 😉 ]

[And just watch the world go by.]

[Oh, taxi!]

[Danny found my cousin!]

[It’s not easy being green!]

Next up?  The next stop!

The Journey Begins Thanks for joining me! This is the follow-up to the original, “alexandriacardinals.wordpress.com,” which overwhelmed the system’s ability to handle it any more. Thus, this is “Part 2.” As the original was initially described: 10-26-07-4 “It all began in a 5,000 watt radio station in Fresno, California” . . . wait a minute, that was Ted Baxter on the Mary Tyler Moore Show! Let’s see . . . oh yeah, it all began in 2003 when retirees, i.e., old people, in Alexandria, Minnesota, who had no desire to become snow birds, went looking for mid-winter entertainment here in the frozen tundra of West Central Minnesota. We discovered girls’ high school hockey, fell in love immediately, and it remains our favorite spectator sport to this day. Initially, and for several years, reports on these games were e-mailed to those who were actually snowbirds but wanted to keep abreast of things “back home.” It was ultimately decided a blog would be more efficient, and it evolved into a personal diary of many things that attracts tens of readers on occasion. It remains a source of personal mental therapy and has yet to elicit any lawsuits. ~ The Editor, May 9, 2014 p.s. The photo border around the blog is the Cardinal girls’ hockey team after just beating Breck for the state championship in 2008. It’s of the all-tournament team. The visible Breck player on the left is Milica McMillen, then an 8th-grader – she is now an All-American for the Gophers. The Roseau player in the stocking cap I believe is Mary Loken, who went on to play for UND; and the Cardinal player on the right, No. 3, is Abby Williams, the player we blame most for making us girls’ hockey fans who went on to play for Bemidji State. *********************************************************************************** Photos contained herein are available for personal use. All you have to do is double click on any of the photos and they will become full screen size. You can then save them into your personal “My Pictures” file. They make lovely parting or hostess gifts, or holiday gifts for such as Uncle Ernie who wants to see how his grand niece is doing on the hockey team. If any are sold for personal profit, however, to, for example, the Audubon Society, National Geographic, Sven’s Home Workshop Monthly, Curling By The Numbers, or the World Wrestling Federation, I only request that you make a donation to the charitable organization of your choice. You have two hours and fifteen minutes. Pencils ready? Begin! **********************************************************************************
